Had a few beers this eve with the bro of a friend of mine. He's from the Baltimore area and pals with Jerry Smith, the dive boat skipper. Apparently it was a minor miracle that the five adrift were found. No mayday was given, no EPIRBs from the boat had activated, 5m swell and poor viz. Only one personal EPIRB activated which alerted the coastguard.

They were found with 20mins of daylight remaining in an area where the coastguard had calculated tidal drift. The woman was close to death.

The keel was canting, stainless with a lead bulb. The stainless had been flexing and fractured. There's 15t of lead out there.

I think some peeps assume that the ballast somehow is in some sort of equilibrium with the rest of the hull, when under way, but it isnt!! .. when that thing heels over thats a heck of a load for the hull to support some distance away from it unless they have some fancy arrangement for reducing that distance

LE Ciara is a Irish Naval Service Peacock-class patrol vessel, nicknamed RoadRunner because it's the fastest vessel in the Irish Navy!

AKA daggerboard! The hydraulic load is pretty phenomenal as well - I've broken dinghy centreboards on a beat with no rocks in sight.

Thinking about it ..there must be some sort of support given by the fin that its attached to as it travels through the water, so the apparent weight isnt the same, in other words the gravitational element would be reduced relative to the boat if it was making way ?
